How Clever thinks about security and privacy

By Liz Allen on

Here at Clever, we think a lot about security and privacy. We support millions of students, half of the schools in the country, and have over 250 application partners—so, we closely track trends and legal requirements for both applications and districts.

We follow federal laws like FERPA and COPPA, in addition to the many state laws that have been passed in recent years. The federal laws are 44 years and 19 years old respectively. Because of the age of the laws and the speed of technological development, states pass additional laws (91 in 3 short years!), creating a complicated web of legal requirements.
